About us

WITH OUR CUSTOMERS IN MIND

Customer service and advice are two of the main pillars of our success. Only by building up long-term, positive relationships with our business partners are we able to maintain these pillars. Consequently, our design consultants are not only salespersons and contact persons – they also generate ideas and assist with invitations to tender and project acquisition.

QUALITY FROM EMSDETTEN

Top quality can only be achieved if everything is kept under close control and none of the manufacturing is outsourced. At drapilux, everything is designed and manufactured in Emsdetten – from the design to the textiles ready for dispatch.

INNOVATION IS OUR TRADITION

Here at drapilux, we manufacture textiles that – despite their wide-ranging applications – have one thing in common: they have to be able to meet special challenges and standards. As a result, innovation, development and a close partnership with our customers have been essential to our long-term success since our company was founded in 1965.

BENEFITTING FROM ONE ANOTHER

As part of Schmitz-Werke, drapilux benefits from its sister brands, markilux and swela. Innovation and research, as well as practical experience, are communicated by these brands and are used to develop the relevant products and services. As Managing Director and owner of the company, Dan Schmitz represents both the 90-year tradition of the family-run business, but also exemplifies the innovative spirit that characterises the company’s products.
